My landlord, his co-owner brother, and more workers have been fixing things here since yesterday morning. They are catching up for a decade’s worth of neglect on what I think is their oldest property. They own at least 4 places that are rented out. Yesterday there was drywall being replaced in two rooms upstairs, a coat of plaster over it is now drying. Repairs of all kinds are happening outside the house: painting in front and on the side, a wall being rebuilt. The wooden steps were repaired. I guess tomorrow will be when they fix two sinks and then rebuild part of the bathroom floor. It will be incredible.
They have a buyer interested in all 4 of their rental properties, so they’re rushing to do whatever is needed.
I’ve had to move a ton of things to make way for the repairs. Being tired from that lifting and cleaning was good for me, eventually, because I have been able to get to sleep.
I’ve been forced to keep air conditioning on, with a series of fans to move cool air to rooms that don’t have an air conditioner in them. The power tools plus a.c. made power surges continually yesterday, until I finally shut down my computer. My computer wouldn’t have been harmed — it’s on a backup battery — but I thought maybe I could reduce the amount of electricity being used.
Late last night, I tried to restart, and my computer went on but the monitor did not. This morning I finally got it working again, because I searched for similar problems with my model of mac, and found a procedure to correct it. I’m so proud. I didn’t need to call anyone.
